Great time in the Redwoods
Pros: Beautiful setting
Very challenging, but worth it
Cons: Be prepared to look forever for a lost disc.
Other Thoughts: Gotta love the setting of this course. Great just for the hike, but the DG makes it perfect.

Pros: So very nice to finally have an 18 hole tournament style course in Eureka! Great front nine, technical but most of which can be played with a mid range. Back nine is streched out a little, utilizing the hillside behind the school for its tight woods and sharp elevation changes. Challenging for both lefty and right handed players
Cons: I don't know if this really counts as a con, but here goes, as you are playing on school grounds no smoking or drinking allowed.
Other Thoughts: Check this course out!

Pros: *REVIEW TO BE UPDATED: This course was recently expanded to 18 holes and i've heard it's really really nice. can't wait to play it and update you all.
-don't think of this as "only a 9 hole" course. its pretty beefy.
-awesome job of incorporating existing structures as obstacles
-birdies were harder to come by here than any other humboldt 9er. similar to de la raza in difficulty.
-all concrete tees. flat and large.
-the tee on 8.
Cons: -small parking fee. not sure of the amount.
-may get crowded due to being on a college campus? its not in a high non-dg traffic area whatever the case.
Other Thoughts: -i can't imagine a better 9 hole course. its challenging, but fair. theres always a nice line to hit and a price to pay if you miss.
-5, 7, and 8 were sweet
-i won't rate a 9 hole course over 3.5, so this is as good as it gets IMO. i figure no 9 hole can equal the 18's i've rated at 4.
-shoutout to par infinity

Pros: -Excellent variety of holes
-All concrete tees (a first in Humboldt County) and baskets
-Great use of the land given
-Tight, technical holes
-Very Challenging (my best is still a 1+)
-Great sinage, with directions to next tee
-Great for a round in between classes, something for the dorm students to do, people living in Fortuna, Rio Dell, Scota, etc...
-Nice use of elevation, especialy on the back 9
-Huge downhill on hole 16
Cons: -Can be quite hard for a beginer
-Some holes realy punish a bad shot
-Some long walks between some of the holes
-Wind can be a big factor on some holes
-Long walk between holes 11 and 12.
-1$ parking charge (not realy that bad)
-Hole 16 could use a beter put in path, maby some stairs.
Other Thoughts: This is the newest course in Humboldt county and it is a very challenging course. The land the college gave us isn't the best, but we managed to put together a realy fun course with good distance, and some very tight and technical holes. I have gone to CR for years and was allways wanting to put a course in there, I'm realy glad to see it happen it will give students something to do between classes. This will also provide an outlet for dorm students who are often traped on campus by a lack of a car.
Edit* The course is now 18 holes. All of the tees are poured, there are signs up on all of the holes. The new 9 realy makes this course great, playing through the redwoods behind campus it has more elevation change than before and will challenge even expereinced throwers.
